Case Closed Mod: New V_Models and HUD
« on: June 28, 2005, 07:27:59 PM »

Noob skinner here so go easy on me. I just recently started getting into skinning for HL and decided that the mod "Case Closed" could use a change. After all what kind of janitor runs around in an HEV suit? So i decided to reskin the barney v_models so they look like the HD Gus model (arms that is), that way the gameplay is a little more believeable. I made a slight change to the HUD so it displays HL2 style font (weapon and ammo icons remain the same, like I said I'm new). But as you can see theres a new health and armor icon. I've been studying how to change HUD color but the Orange in my opinion does the job since Gus does wear an Orange jumpsuit.

As for sounds theres custom ones for the M4 but those came with it from the author( or not, its been forever). I muted most of the fvox sounds, I know i can probably change that in the coding but I'm not that advanced at the moment. The sounds remaining are fuzz, flatline and beep since Gus's suit is more like a backpack. Not that advanced but I assume its some kind of rudimentary protection system for construction staff.

Right now I'm still debating on releasing it since obviously theres kinks to be worked out, and the V_models I'm using use other people's weapons (If realeased FULL CREDIT will be given to all.) and I'm working on modifying the Gus sleeve so it includes that orange bar on his uniform and maybe sharpening it up a tad. The one you see in the screenshot below is a test.

Well thats it. Any questions, concerns or constructive crits feel free to post.

I thought about it for a while and decided to leave the chargers and batteries. as stated earlier, that small backpack he wears (for my Gus model I downloaded anyway) could act as a sort of protection system for him that would need to be recharged just like an HEV would. I tried replacing the batteries with security armor and making the chargers inoperable for the player but so far that proves a Herculean task for someone with my skills.

I think the origins of that v_model need to be changed a bit. It looks a little too far forward imo. And maybe lower it a little.  ;)

I totally agree but at this point theres no need. I've been reworking the V models so they use just the default HD weapons from Valve.

Looks good. But you should use an armour icon instead of the HEV one.
I think that M4 in the picture is jAbutin's but I'm not sure.

Sven Port wasn't as long.  But yes, Case Closed isn't very long.
